I was an officer on the Itasca PD when Ed joined the department. He and Harriet became close with me and my wife Sharon, and we socialized during our time on the job. We enjoyed each others company. I left the department for another line of work shortly thereafter and we lost touch. I regret that. Ed was a good man.

Ed and I grew up together in the same neighborhood on the north side of Chicago. We attended the same elementary school and played ball at Hamlin Park. We served in different branches of the military and joined different police departments. I only saw Ed after that at an occasional police function. About 10 years ago a friend of his brother, Jim, put us in touch again. We were surprised to find out that we each recovered from recent heart attacks. We reminisced about how wonderful it was to grow up in the 1950's in the old neighborhood. We shared stories about those times and all our friends. We did what retirees do, we shared stories about our aches and pains. Jim's health stories became more serious recently and I prayed for him and waited for some positive news. Of course, you know that did not happen. I am so happy that I got to share a few years with Ed and hear how happy he was with his retirement. I heard about how loving and caring Harriet is and how proud he was of Caroline and Michele. To them and to the entire Innis family we extend our deepest sympathies.
